She has a team of seven, and charges about 500 pounds, or a little more than $1,000, a day for a "deputy princess" and assistant who's usually "up the ladder dusting with Pledge." Gibbs' own prices start at 450 pounds per day, or more than $900, plus an assistant. In the new year, she will begin selling her 250 pounds, or $500, Wardrobe Essentials pack, which includes the hangers, folding templates, and products including bikini bags, drawer dividers and shoe labels.
